There’s been some interesting speculation on the rumour mill so far this summer when it comes to Wolverhampton Wanderers and potential arrivals, but we’ve also seen some departure talk and youngster Rafa Mir certainly features in that.
After his spell last season with Las Palmas there was some talk that they would welcome him back this year as they look to make further improvements, and there were also some suggestions that Granada were interested in him.
A more sensible option from our point of view when it comes to his development and really assessing the 21-year-old will make it in the English game was the claim that we’d offered him to Championship side Hull City.
Although the links with those three sides have gone quiet, outlet El Periodico de Aragon have now claimed that Zaragoza have also been tracking the youngster given his performances in the Segunda Division last season, but with a claimed £20,000 after tax wage at the club, that is a major stumbling block for them.
I’m sceptical on this one, not only do I not believe they’d know exactly what his wage and deal at the club is, we are looking to develop the lad not simply get him off our wage bill, and I very much doubt Las Palmas were covering his full wage – whatever that may be – anyway.
So it just reads as wanting to get Wolves into a story to spike interest rather than actually being a credible rumour.
